Not lame at all...you need a weedeater these days to do any serious sorting...always good to see you, Wharf; looks like it's you, me, StSt and some guy from MASH.

It's a nice reminder of the 50k plus that gave their lives in that "police action" though doubt that Hawkeye ever gave it much thought.

Oh well, a joke is as good as gun in times like these. [My complete collection of top 68 shows to the forumite that recognizes the battleground where that was uttered.]

Hey guy--forgot about that little comment! Way to go...but no, sorry.

It is from the battle of Rorke's Drift in Natal, between the Welsh (24th foot) and the Zulus, as offered by color sergeant Bourne (though I paraphrased a bit: he says, "a bayonet is as good as prayer on a day like this").

Yeah, looks like you guys had some fun yesterday, I was out racing (crewing on my freind's sailboat). In case anyone missed it I highly recommend 5-31-83 & 6-1-83 Jerry Garcia Bands shows - they are on speeding arrow and are real good even though not lossless. I posted a sample song on rapidshare (A smokin' Don't Let Go) on Sat I think. Oh well Monday and back to work.
